The Bustards are located in extreme northeast Lake Huron, at the top of Georgian Bay. In the early days of this century, a commercial fishing industry flurished in these waters. The catch was hauled by boat to a railhead at Key Harbour, a few miles to the east, or loaded onto a steamer that sailed it down Georgian Bay.
In July of 1994, after 40 miles of close-hauled sailing to reach the Bustards, we anchor Voyager III, off the northeast tip of Burnt Island. Once the boat is secure, we take a trip ashore to look for wild blueberries and to explore. After two relaxing days in these protected waters, we will sail west again and continue our cruise. We leave the Bustards the way we came, toward the west and via "The Gun Barrel".
